Car hood Coffee Tables

Texas artist Joel Hester turns old junk metal into very sturdy functional pieces of furniture, like these awesome coffee tables made from car hoods:

I gotta say, I love the idea of a coffee table that not only won't be damaged by pets, small children or flying objects, but could actually fend off such things.

Want one yourself? Well, it'll run you at least $ 700. Ugh...think I might pull out the welder and learn to make them myself...
